Canon MP620 Does not Print

Post by dCipher » Fri Sep 04, 2015 7:26 pm

Hi

I have been using Turbo Print for years with my Canon MP620. However after I updated the computer with the latest version of Linux Mint I cannot print. I get messages like printer not responding or that turbo print is unable to save the configuration changes. So I used the Mint "Printers" app and added the Canon printer uri as bjnp://192.168.1.123. When I print a test page it processes but is never printed. If try adding a printing using TurboPrint and network printer with the IP address and Port it always says the printer did not respond etc. So I do not know what is wrong. When I set it up on Mint 13 TurboPrint found the printer and configured everything and it just worked.

Any suggestion as to why I cannot print on the new version of Mint 17?

Thanks,
Simon

Hi

The printer is now working but the problem appears to be due to an installer failure. The GDebi Installer just hung so I had to cancel it. I then had to run "dpkg --configure -a " which hung until I pressed "Enter" in the terminal window and then I get the following message:

install-post: line 599: kde4-config: command not found

after which the configuration completes and the printer now prints.
